As part of Wrexham Football Club’s 150th Anniversary celebrations, and with the kind co-operation of Glyndwr University, fans of the Club will be part of a lasting tribute of this special year. A commemorative mosaic made up of 2,000 fans photos will be installed in the concourse of the Mold Road Stand to mark the Anniversary season.
Wrexham FC are looking for 2,000 fans to have their photos and photos of loved ones incorporated within the mosaic as a lasting tribute for all supporters of Wrexham Football Club. The photos will be reduced to around an inch square, and together they will form a distinctive montage of ten iconic legends who have all played a significant part in the Club’s history.
Glyndwr University student Ben Seas has designed the mosaic, which will be a fitting recognition of the Club’s 150 year history. It will stand proudly in the concourse, and has been designed to be movable should the stand ever be redeveloped.
There will be a very special ,once in a lifetime opportunity to be involved in a ceremony to mark the outbreak of WW1 at the top of Moel Famau The walk to the top will be lead by Expeditionwise with full safety cover and I invite all to join us on this momentous occasion.
There is a charge with £10 donation to Poppy Appeal
In addition Memorial candles will be available from M&S from early July. We will be using torches on the Moel Famau summit with one symbolic candle
The principle here is to signify the dark days of the outbreak of WW1 by extinguishing all of the candles apart for one which then becomes’ the candle of hope’. After a period of reflection in the dark all of the lights are relit to symbolise the dawn of a new era.
Please join us and show the world that we do remember. Book now - click here
